IN THE PINK - Breast Cancer Awareness/200th Post GIVEAWAY

Well, who woulda' ever "thunk" that I would actually keep at this for 200 posts! And, it just happens to land smack in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. AND, while I have been on the subject of family, and those near and dear to my heart, I'm going to continue for one more post. Most every one of us have had our lives touched by Breast Cancer, in one way or another - my grandmother was a survivor. What better way to celebrate this post milestone than a GIVEAWAY, celebrating someone special in that lucky winner's life.
The rosary style chain has been hand wired - sterling silver beads and S-hook (the necklace is made so you can change out pendants), amongst beautiful PINK matte Czech glass beads.  The chain will slip right over your head, with a 14.25" drop to the top of the S-hook.  The pendant is 3" X 1" - two panes of glass sandwiched between lead-free solder.  Total, overall length of necklace is approx. 18".  You will be receiving the very chain shown ~ however, the little girl on this pendant happens to be my Grandmother, so this particular pendant will be going to my own Mom.  BUT, here's where more fun stuff comes into play, just for you...
The lucky winner will be able to email me two photos of that "special to THEM" person, so that I can make up a personalized, double-sided pendant.  Color or black and white photos...makes no never mind.  We will discuss that once the winner has been chosen.
My Mom's sister, as a young girl on the reverse side.
How do I enter, you may ask?  "Follow" and leave a comment...simple as that.  Winner will be chosen on Sunday noon, October 14th.
I had made up a few of these this summer, and had an overwhelming response to the one I wore for most of my vacation.  These will hit the Etsy store soon, or you can email me (tlgreb927@cox.net) for details if you don't want to wait, or want something special ~
 
$45.00 for one double-sided pendant AND hand-made rosary style necklace set
(that's $15.00 pendant/$30.00 necklace)...
$12.00 for each additional pendant ordered with set.
In the meantime, take care of your "girls" - get that check-up and urge your loved ones to do the same!  Happy Tuesday...XOXO
